    Ratzeburg-produced 6" Korth Combat in .357 Mag. with 9mm cylinder. A 6" barrel is quite common on the Korth Sport, but a 6" Combat is the second-rarest of all non-commemorative Ratzeburg Korth models and variants.

    Recently picked up a 3" first-pattern Korth Combat in 99% condition, and with no import marks -- one of a very few Combats made before Korth started etching their logo on the frame.

    Wow. I've only seen one Korth in person in my entire life. Yours looks much nicer.

    Did he actually carry that? It looks brand new......and with the optional target hammer and grips too, very nice. I like the grip inserts on the GP's too.

    Yes, he did for many years as a state trooper before he went to plain clothes duty. It had a trigger shoe I took off. It has a few small blemishes on the cylinder but doesn't appear to have been shot a lot. The gun is shown as he bought it as the box is marked. It'll stay in the family. He once told me a story about a bookie he busted at home and his daughter insisted that he have dinner with them before he took her father for booking. My FIL died never knowing, 25 years before he told me the story Mr. Conte alias "hockey" was my bookie.

    Yes, I've shown it here a few times. But I just got her and she is just stunning, except the grips. That will be remedied soon.

    My stepfather is a retired Chief of Police and FBI Academy graduate. He is a slight fellow with nerves of steel and cajones the size of bowling balls.

    His first LEO job was as the Town Marshall of Potlatch, ID in the early 70's. Johnny cash played there and referred to it as the toughest town he ever played in. The rottenest bunch of red neck loggers you'd ever come across.

    Dad figured he'd need a sidearm that was intimating and commanded respect just at the sight of it. This was his duty weapon...

    And his dad was a simple farm boy from Southern Idaho who enlisted in the Army in WWII to go kill Nazis. He ended up in North Africa and then Italy as a tank commander and one of the folks that the movie "Fury" was based on. His sidearm was a S&W M17 in .45 ACP that he carved custom grips for out of the windscreen of a downed German plane. Though his preferred sidearm was the 1911. Dad now has that revolver...

    Great pictures of family guns with history behind them! Grandpa looked like a tough hombre. On Veteran's Day we should start a thread somewhere posting some photos of family members who serve/served during war time. Perhaps with a sidearm or rifle so as to be "gun related."

    Trey - the revolver in the padded case - a .45 LC or a .44 Magnum?
